Navi Mumbai: A 36-year-old man died after an inter-city passenger bus crashed into his car on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, on Monday.

According to police, Surendra Srivastava had come to Mumbai for work. He was driving home around 7.15pm. As he was crossing the Bhattan area in Raigad district, he suddenly applied the brakes and slowed down. The bus, that was behind his car, hit it.

“Srivastava suffered severe injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital by locals, but he succumbed to his injuries,” said Neelam Pawar, police sub-inspector from Panvel Taluka police station.

The bus driver Ajaruddin Patel, 26, was arrested and booked under Sections 304a, 279, 427 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and section 184 of the Motor Vehicle Act.

“It is not clear why Srivastava had to apply sudden brakes. We identified him from the documents recovered from his pockets and informed his family,” Pawar said.

She said that the body was handed over to his family after a post mortem was conducted at the Panvel rural hospital. The reports are yet to come.
